Jade Tree Records has a pre-order up for a new 7″, “Sterile” by the band Leather. These guys are earth shattering. I miss hearing records that grabbed me like this. If you need punk music that is spazzed out and brilliant, I beg you to check out this band. Like a combo of New Bomb Turks, Hollowmen, National Acrobat, and Born Against.
Get link HERE. Sound clips on there too.
Here’s a little bit that’s been floating around.
With only a hard to find cassette demo, one sold out 7”, a smattering of blog posts and some messageboard banter in their wake, Philadelphia’s Leather have just begun to emerge from an existence unknown to all but those “in the know.” Sterile is surely not the first adjective that crosses one’s mind when confronted with the noisy hardcore on this 4 song EP, aptly described by compatriot and Clockcleaner frontman John Sharkey as the result “…if Tad Doyle had owned Age Of Quarrel and actually listened to it.” It’s safe to say that picking up this vinyl will mean reliving these ten minutes hundreds of times over while waiting for the next recorded dose or a chance to witness a live show (likely to be in a dilapidated warehouse or a basement as grimy as their sound).
